Fabienne Delvigne is a Belgian milliner and has specialized since 1988 in the design and manufacturing of Haute Couture hats, jewellery, handbags and other fashion accessories.
The elegant headwear that Fabienne Delvigne has created since the late 80’s has secured the Belgian milliner’s position as the go-to designer for members of the Royal Families of Belgium, The Netherlands, Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and Sweden.
Her know-how has been rewarded since 2001, when she was initially awarded the official patent of « Belgian Royal Warrant Holder ».
Fabienne Delvigne’s sophisticated and timelessly chic millinery has won her wide acclaim and she has collaborated with designers including Giorgio Armani, Chanel, Dior or Natan.
Very imaginative, she likes to collaborate with other talents. She has for example created hats in crystal or chocolate and, more recently, she collaborated with BMW and created two hats for the launch of the new i8 Roadster.
She creates hats to enhance the beauty and confidence of the wearer and while each is completely unique, her name is synonymous with classic European elegance.
